Workout Like a Model | Steal Her Gym Style

By Desta Cullen
26th Jul 2014

Looking good while you're working out has never been so easy, or so expected. The rise and rise of designer sports wear that's so expensive you'd never actually dare sweat on it (I'm looking at you, Net-a-Sporter) has had the unfortunate effect of forcing us all to ditch our bike pants and giant ugly t-shirts in favour of more refined sportswear options. 

So, we're looking to our favourite fitspo models for gym gear guidance.

Pilates | Karlie Kloss

American golden girl — and classically trained ballerina — Kloss loves the strength and lean toned look you can achieve with Pilates. Her workout ensembles are equally sleek; Kloss favours a colourful crop top with a pair of full-length, figure-hugging leggings for her toning workouts. Her post-workout ensemble is no less effortless, either. Sigh.

Karlie Approved Outfit    

Gym Seamless Crop Top, Nike $50
Wellicious Dance Leggings, available at Fire & Shine $144.95

Yoga | Gisele

A famous yoga devotee, Gisele's enviable bod' might be out of reach, but her workout style, you can get! Despite appearances, Bundchen's not always doing backbends in bikinis. Her go to style is a chic loose fitting singlet with breathable — and super flexy — cropped yoga tights. Gisele's ultimate accessory is her adorbs' daughter Vivian, but you'll have to BYO baby. 

Gisele Approved Outfit

105 F Singlet *Silver, $59 
In the Flow Crop II, $99  
Both available from lululemon Indooroopilly, James Street, and Carindale.

[Editor's Tip: Swap out the tank for the Get it On top from lululemon's new sports luxe collection, &Go — developed by the lululemon lab — for the perfect post-workout, street appropriate look.] 

Cardio | Joan Smalls

Puerto Rican bombshell Joan doesn't shy away from a mean cardio workout (no dieting for this beauty). Joan's pick of the cardio roster? Boxing. And vigorous workout needs a hardy outfit, but in Joan's world, that doesn't have to mean fugly. So it shouldn't in yours either. Werk it.  

Joan Approved Outfit

The Upside Race Shorts, Stylerunner, $65
Mandy T-Shirt, Lorna Jane, $39.99
After Hours Zip Front JacketRunning Bare $99.95
